The brief was to design a kitchen with warmth and impressive textures to suit the house which spanned over four levels. The design needed to allow for casual eating in the kitchen and ample preparation and storage areas. Utilitarian bench tops were selected for the preparation zones on the island and adjacent to the cook top. A thick recycled timber slab was installed for the lowered eating zone and a stunning transparent marble for the splashback and display niche. Joinery was manufactured in timber veneer and polyurethane. Critical to the modern sleek design was that the kitchen had minimum handles. To balance the design, decorative timber panels were installed on the ceiling over the island. As storage was also a priority, a walk in pantry was installed which can be accessed at the far left by pushing a timber veneer panel.
